On the same day that police found evidence that Jennifer Dulos had been assaulted at her New Canaan home, phone location and video surveillance evidence shows that her estranged husband and his girlfriend steered a black pickup truck through north Hartford, making 30 stops to dump bags in trash cans and storm drains, including items that later tested positive for the missing woman’s blood, according to a state police affidavit. — This article previously was published by NewCanaanite.com. In an arrest warrant application for felony chargesbrought against Fotis Dulos and Michelle Troconis, Connecticut State Police Detective John Kimball said that investigators on May 24 searched Jennifer Dulos’s New Canaan garage after friends reported her missing and found “multiple blood stains on the garage floor which tested positive for human blood” as well as “multiple areas of suspected blood spatter” and “evidence of attempts to clean the crime scene.”

They determined “that a serious physical assault had occurred at the scene, and Jennifer Dulos was the suspected victim” and the following day seized an iPhone belonging to her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, during a meeting at New Canaan Police headquarters, according to Kimball, a 25-year veteran of the state police who works with the Western District Major Crime Squad. A forensic search of the device, conducted with help from the U.S. Marshals Service, helped investigators sketch out the following timeline for Fotis Dulos and Michelle Troconis for May 24:

1:37 p.m. The iPhone of Fotis Dulos, having left his home at 4 Jefferson Crossing in Farmington, entered a property owned by his construction company, Fore Group, at 80 Mountain Spring Road. 3:38 p.m. The phone traveled back to Fotis Dulos’s residence at 4 Jefferson Crossing.
